Walmart’s commitment to hiring veterans and military spouses

A conversation with Brynt Parmeter, senior director of military and STEM programs, Walmart

This month, WorkingNation highlights stories about veterans and work with a series of articles, videos, podcasts, and a new digital magazine, Inquire Within.

This summer, Walmart surpassed a goal it set for itself seven years ago: hiring 250,000 new veteran associates. It’s just part of the commitment the retailer has returning service men and women and to military families.

Walmart’s Brynt Parmeter, senior director military and STEM programs and an Army veteran, explains that the company’s goal is to not only hire veterans and their spouses, but to provide them with education benefits to set them on the path to the careers of their choosing.

He shares details of the company’s mission in this Work in Progress podcast for Inquire Within: Veterans and Work.
